The results of field work in 1935-1936 and of subsequent study of 81 thin sections are put forward to show that a broad belt of crushed and mylonitized rock is present along a 40-mile stretch between Fort William and Foyers, on the southeast flank of the Great Glen, northwest Scotland. The evidence is recorded in support of Kennedy's claim (1946) of the presence of a crush-belt which has since been questioned by Shand (1951).
